    History

    It used to repeat itself.

    It has repeated itself for centuries. The mistakes of our forefathers are our mistakes. It was obvious, even to me, and I've never opened a book, never mind read one.

    But like Ozzy Osbourne said, "The time's they are a changing." Ha.

    But an entirely new epoch is now forming. I haven't the imagination required but I know that all the brains of the past 2000 yrs are going to be obsolete. They were good but they aint got a look in.

    There's a New Worl coming peeps and Huxley wasn't even close.

    So you get the History Channel. Does that make you a philosopher?

    Hmmm Sure it was Ozzie? Not normally one I look to for zeitgeist.

    In fifty years we will be under the heel of a tyrannical totalitarian regime. Mark my words. Either that or all sitting in orgasmatrons all day.

    Never had the philosophy channel. But I am a philosopher

    Ozzy was my Zeitgeist

    Eh, maybe Mr Wick High School Teacher, maybe. I think you've confused me with EGB No address given but I'm fairly certain USA are streets above the Isalm bams? Centuries above them at a guess? And I don't like either. Am I coherent?

    or both. sex as soma; not an improbable proposition - some wolfie smith types would argue that is already murdoch's modus operandi.

    authoritarian nationalism is the future.

    a technology driven utopia is less and less likely as super-complexity, physical engineering constraints and reducing reserves of fuel come into play. utopianism is also the biggest la-la idea you could find but that's another story.

    the only way technology is likely to really advance is in the event of war; as has always been the case. until then we'll be refining minaturisation and reinventing the wheel as ever. it's conceivable genetics may yield some major outputs but unlikely, and even then hardly the stuff of the jetsons.
